Game Recommendations Needed!

Hi!

I'm looking for games with complexity and interesting mechanics. I love RPGs, strategy games, simulations, etc.. and would be up for trying anything good, really. I've already grabbed a bunch of games but I'm wondering if there's more I missed. Feel free to recommend me anything! :razz: Thanks!
